The Substance and the Egg

To the artist, Sophia Kalkau (b. 1960), great art leaves you speechless – This is also what she strives to achieve in her own art. Kalkau works with a variety of medias including photography, sculpture and installation. Her art is often characterized by the use of geometric shapes and minimalistic figures.

Throughout this portrait of Sophia Kalkau we follow the entire process of creating “the Egyptian Egg” and “the Marble Stele”. We experience the huge work behind each piece and her unique way of thinking.
